People saying The Beatles weren't political

When Paul makes a political statement like endorsing Obama, people tell him to stay out of politics, particularly older people. You don't have to agree with his politics, but in my opinion its kind of stupid tell him to keep out of politics. I mean do they not listen Beatles songs or what they said in the 60s or were they (the people) too messed up on drugs? I bring this up because The Fest for Beatles Fans posted this picture (below) & said: THIS! #peace #love #equality #BeatlesFans. In case you do not know, the red background and the pink equal signs is to support marriage equality here in the states. During the week people were changing their facebook pictures to a picture with a red background and pink equal signs. Some people on the Fest For Beatles Fans facebook were up in arms about the group posting this and saying The Beatles were not political and keep The Beatles out of politics.

The people who got offended at that must be stupid, The Beatles were all about peace and love, which is really what all this is about, that, and Equality. 

 

The whole anti gay people/ gay marriage deal is kind of a pet peeve of mine. My friend's sister is gay, and since her parents are such "religious" people they won't even talk to her. How could anybody raise a kid, and then not talk to them just because of their sexual orientation? Then, they pretend to be good religious people. They're not good people, you don't do that to your own child for something so petty, that's disgusting. You don't agree with that lifestyle, whatever, but to shun these people is completely different. I don't eat meat, I find the thought od it repulsive, but I don't look down upon those who do eat meat, it's their life, so why should I care. 

Thats just sad to disown your own child. I know don't know anyone that bad (personally), but reading the comment section on my local news facebook page disgust me (I live in the bible belt). They act like all good little Christians, but they're really filled with hate. I understand if you don't support gays or their marriage, but honestly they are humans too. Oh, but they eat shellfish (its popular down here) or divorce even though the bible says not to, but because times have changed. ahdn_paul_01I do not think God would approve of their hate.

This really gets under my skin too.  I don't understand why people get so wound up over shit that doesn't effect their lives whatsoever.  Why do they care who other people Love?  Love is Love is Love, not matter who it is.  

As for the vegetarian thing, I totally agree.  I get so much shit for that, even after all these years.  And I don't bitch and judge people at all, yet I am always a target for them?  Such a double standard, I get so tired of it.  It's the same sometimes with tattoos.  I work with a girl who is always going off like "Oh I could never get a tattoo because blah blah blah blah.."  That's nice, I didn't even ask, because I could care less.  I don't care who has them and who doesn't, I don't judge people on that, but I sure as hell get judged for having them!  My body, my life, my business.  That goes for everything people do.  If it's not hurting anybody, then who cares?  a-hard-days-night-paul-10

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

99.9% of those who claim to be religious ignore or rewrite to their ideals their testaments they claim to follow. Those on the extremes of the political wings find democracy the problem that stands in their way, or goes against their view.

That is one of my pet peeves about religious people. I hate when "Christians" take certain aspects of the bible and throw the rest away basically. I'm not religious, more spiritual, but if I were a Christian that probably irk more than anything. 

I also hate when people think there is a war on Christianity. "Its so hard to be a Christian people always putting us down, Wah Wah wah." Uh, you all criticized and shoved religion down people throats first. How does it feel? Shut up!

I don't like it when people force you to share your political opinions, and get angry when you don't believe what they believe. Everyone is different, and there are some people who need to realize that. Having political opinions is a good thing, but I can't stand all of the hate that results from them.

Yea I really have to bite my tongue on fb or not post beliefs sometimes cause other will jump down my throat.

OH I have another one.  I hate when people bombard their Facebook page with their pushy religious views every single day.  Enough already.  You can be religious (which I am definitely not) without pushing it on everybody all the time.  I don't do that with being a vegetarian.  

I really dislike people post like bible verses everyday or one of those post "if you love Jesus like. If you like the devil keep scrolling". Um..no I'm not going to like some picture because I like Jesus. 

Speaking of pictures like that. I hate when people put pictures of abuse or disable people and say like if you care. Its not that I live in a make believe world, but I don't want to see that. There was one where a disable kids got beat up around here and it was flowing around the news feed. It really affected me cause I had a special needs brother and I did not want to see cause it broke my heart, but there was no way of escaping it. People think they are helping these people, but they aren't. They are just exploiting them.
